The Hartford Courant was founded on October 29, 1764, as a weekly newspaper (The Connecticut Courant) and has never missed a publication since its inception. It's the newspaper in which George Washington placed an ad to lease part of his Mount Vernon land. Thomas Jefferson sued this newspaper for libel - and lost. And Mark Twain tried to buy stock in this paper but his offer was turned down.
The paper won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism for a series of stories on the flaws that plagued the Hubble telescope, and the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting for the in-depth coverage of the tragic events of the shooting at Connecticut Lottery headquarters.
In 2013, The Hartford Courant was one of three Pulitzer Prize finalists in the Breaking News category for "complete and sensitive coverage" of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., and for "using digital tools, as well as traditional reporting, to tell the story quickly while portraying the stunned community's grief."
